Fall 2009 Taste Test
September 22, 2009
TMG presented two notable authorities on delivering performance improvements. Simple, practical and realistic ideas for igniting momentum in your organization.
Will Someone Make a Decision Around Here?
Dr. Bea Carson, TMG Senior Consultant, is an author, speaker and a recognized expert in the field of Action Learning. Dr. Carson has taken the best aspects of Action Learning and blended them with the framework of the Balanced Scorecard. This technique reduces the time for initially populating a corporation's scorecard from 18 months to a matter of weeks, creating a strategic plan that is a living, usable document. This double-barreled approach makes the process a consistently productive enrichment that really works, instead of a grueling annual chore that often misses the mark.
So You Say Change is Good?
Margaret Fisher, TMG Senior Consultant, is an expert in the area of guiding organizations, boards, and coalitions through successful transformation and development projects. Areas of expertise include facilitation, customer satisfaction focus, project management, change leadership, internal consulting skills, organization assessment and volunteerism. Through her dedication to customer service and understanding of organizational change, she has directed innovative member-focused solutions that also produced significant cost savings for her clients.

Leadership Voices for Catalyzing and Sustaining Change
Developing Leadership Voices in the New Millennium
One of the most frequent issues confronting organizations is the lack of communication. This impacts organizations both large and small. Developing communication abilities within leaders generates tremendous leverage of organizational capacity.
Understanding Leadership Style with Gloria Norman
Current theory suggests that different situations require different leadership styles. In fact, the most successful leaders are those who are able to adapt their style to the unique demands of the situation.
Executive Presence Coaching with Gordon Silcox
Wouldn't you like to increase your probability of success when presenting in front of your audience? Do you need a refresher course on how to 'wow' your audience? We'll assist you in having a positive impact on your audience by improving the quality of your presentation. The result could be a greater chance of getting your project approved, improving your chances of getting the sale, or having a higher percentage of your message being retained.

Retooling to Claim the Strategic Advantage
Strategy Development + Workforce Planning + Learning and Knowledge Management = Strategic Advantage
Simplified Strategic Planning
Taking Control, Involving Employees and Linking Systems
It is required at the highest levels of an organization right down to the department head. Unless a strategy is in place, activities cannot be aligned to accomplish a common goal. If you are familiar with the old adage "if you don't know where you are going, any road will take you there," you know that strategic direction is critical for success, especially in today's economic climate.
Strategic Workforce Planning
Aligning Human Capital with Business Direction
Once you know where you want to go, you need to make sure you have the "tools" to get there. Your most valuable asset is your people. Like any other asset (money, equipment, etc.), you must make absolutely sure that you have the right assets, in the right place, at the right time to achieve your organizational mission. There is a method to planning a workforce that will provide maximum efficiency at a minimal cost.
Managing and Delivering Learning & Knowledge
When and Where it is Needed
Operating at peak capacity requires providing the knowledge people need, when they need it. It is the key to competitive advantage in today's rapidly-changing environment. The ability to hold all employees accountable for daily tasks that achieve the organizational mission lays the foundation for continuous improvement. Implementing a learning and knowledge management program allows management at all levels to ensure that all activities are contributing to the bottom line.
